5 options.

Being optimistic with my vote of 1-2 hours, best I have done it is 1hr28, generally 1h45 though my longest back to Bahrain was 6h30, wow did the beer taste good that night!

Default Re: Commute Times

Depends. Normally 25 but 1hr 15 the other morning. It all depends on the Sharjah scumbags who cut in off the E311 at Mirdif. That's if I am in the office 50% of the time but if I am on site then it's ~1 1/2.

It's a long arduous journey but I have to cross the upstairs hallway, go down the stairs and cross another hallway before I get to my office.

It was 25mins in the morning and 40-50 in the evening. Thanks to the new road for the rich and elite near the DIFC, it is now 25mins, both ways.
